I love microfiber pants. On trips of any length more than a couple of days I take one pair of them, one pair of jeans, one pair of shorts and one pair of Darien pants. This is a mix-and match combo for all temperatures and social situations. Normally I wear the Darien pants over the shorts, which are cotton and can double as underwear. Preferred shorts are like boxer underwear except they have pockets. If it is a little cooler, I’ll add the microfiber pants under the Darien pants. If it is real cold, I wear all three pants together: Darien, microfiber, jeans. For formal off-bike evenings, I wear the microfiber pants. For less formal off-bike wear, the jeans.
